Pistons’ McDyess ejected

Auburn Hills, MI (Sports Network) – Detroit Pistons forward Antonio McDyess
was ejected from Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals on Thursday.

McDyess was tossed with 28.6 ticks left in the first quarter after LeBron
James hit a diving Anderson Varejao in the lane with a no look pass and
McDyess met the Cavs forward with a hard foul.

The officials huddled and whistled the Pistons big man for a Flagrant 2 foul,
which carries with it an automatic ejection.

James, who was cut off trying to get at McDyess after he saw the foul, was
also nabbed for a technical foul.

The Cavs went on to win the game, 109-107, in double overtime behind James,
who put together one of the great postseason performances in NBA history.

James scored a playoff career-high 48 points, pulled down nine rebounds and
dished out seven assists for the Cavaliers, who won their third straight in
the series to take a 3-2 lead.
